Hi guys. I'm looking to switch up my hair a bit. My hair is currently brown and kind of bored with it since I've had it so long. Would like to know your thoughts on this hair colour? Would you say this is a dirty blonde? And would you say it's ash? I don't want it too ash times but I also don't want it too warm since it won't go well with my skin. I took some inspiration from the lovely ScarJo
It's a lovely colour, much nicer than brassy yellow blonde or platinum blonde. It's not a non-colour, to me the most boring colour is a mousy brown. It's not dirty blonde, more of an ash colour but it looks lighter than ash to me.
It's on the very cool/ashy spectrum (so hopefully you are cool toned?) id say an ashy brond near the roots and an ashy wheat blond on the ends. You'll need some upkeep if they are using bleach to keep that ash tone. It's very pretty
Wow thank you guys I really didn't expect any more answers but I really appreciate your input. I have a colour consultation tomorrow and I've narrowed it down to two colours. So difficult to make a decision!
Well the roots to ears are ashy and then from then on its gold/ yellowy. Looks like. She's had it beached and that's the regrowth at the top. Ashy colours are very hard to get right. My daughter is ashy blond and whenever she's bleached it or put big chunks in lighter, they always look so yellow. So she redyes the ashieist colour she can find at Sally's and it's still too warm. It'll be a hard colour to get. Especially as y.ou are brunette - are your undertones reddish or copper? F so you are going to ruin your hair potentially by doing this. Make sure you go to a great colour specialist hairdresser.
Well I'm definitely not going to be attempting this myself! My hair is a dyed brown at the moment and it has a slight reddish undertone I suppose? I'm going to a really good hairdressers so they'll be able to correct the red undertone so I'm not too worried about that. Fingers crossed 🤞
